Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

"They're all above me," a young child whispers with awe, as she looks skyward to heaven. Of course she's speaking of angels, those magical guardians that children are irresistibly drawn to. In the next page we see a child climbing a tree and reaching for an alluring bunch of cherries as a watchful angel stands below, arms spread, ready to catch the cherry picker if he falls. "Beneath me, before me," the text continues. Page by page we see children sledding, answering questions in school, catching snowflakes on their tongues, as "my father's" Christian angels stand guard close by. Illustrator Barbara Hranilovich complements this tender text with all the richness it deserves in swirling, vivid pictures, seemingly made from chalk and watercolors. The book comes with a read-along cassette tape narrated by Gloria Gaither. (Ages 4 to 8) --Gail Hudson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

My Father's Angels is a wonderful book that makes one feel good just reading it. The pictures are whimsical, warm and comforting, all adjectives that are perfect when reading to a small child. Reminding children that they can feel safe with angels all around them is a great concept to teach them at a young age. The cassette which accompanies the book is beautifully sung by children and perfectly matches the book. I couldn't think of a single way to improve on the book or the cassette. The illustrations in the book make me smile. I can think of no better way to picture angels. I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially to parents of young children. This book would make an excellent gift for parents-to-be. Grandparents, parents and friends could give this book with the assurance that it would be happily received.

What a great, great kid's book! The message is simple yetprofound - God's angels are everywhere, even though we can't seethem. The positive message for children - that they have angels protecting them - and the bright, colorful, happy artwork combine to make this book a perfect option for toddlers and early elementary kids. And the music cassette which accompanies the book is a nice bonus.

I was so impressed with the beautiful art in this book. Bright colors, kids with adorable faces, and angels like we've never imagined them before are just a few of the highlights.
The popular song, "My Father's Angels" is cleaverly woven through the story of kids' lives and ends up at church where you see the kids act out the traditional nativity!
This is a very very cool book!

I have the cassette of the My Father's Angels song from when my 3 boys were toddlers in the early 1980s and I was delighted to see it on cd just in time for my first grandchild's 3rd birthday! My adult sons remembered the song at the birthday party! The song is beautiful and calming for bedtime. I've given it to my two great neices also.
